Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!

If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)

Here is a link to a special little guy, if you have a minute, stop by his page and leave a little something for him.


This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.

I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.

Enjoy! Bev :)

I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.



THE STONE SEEKER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

RE: Robin Williams
I agree. He was one of a kind. People need to recognize depression and not make fun of those who have it. My son has it and it is not a fun thing. He broke his back and 14 back surgeries and is not in a divorce. Really messed with his mind. His soon to be X said she did not bargain for being married to a disabled person. Nice huh? Not his fault the surgery went wrong. Have a good one and Robin will be missed forever.

Robin Williams
He was such a wonderful person and humanitarian. What joy he gave to us all. Laughter and tears. I will never forget his kind eyes. Just so sad and tragic he suffered so much behind those smiles and jokes he gave to us. He left a beautiful legacy behind him not only with his work but his family.R.I.P

Thank you
Thanks for sharing the photos of Robin Williams. That was such a shock to the world. How I wish that they could have helped him. As we all know all too well, sometimes depression just can't be defeated before it takes a person over completely.
Thanks again for sharing. I did see the special on 20/20 and cried through the whole thing! I loved him so much. He was awesome... a TRUE LEGEND!
Hugs, Cecile

Bev, Again, thanks for writing. It makes me happy to know that someone also appreciates what these Indians have done for our country. I have always had a "soft spot" in my heart for the Indian nations. We, (the white people who invaded THEIR land) have betrayed them in so many ways, it's disgusting! I hope God has a special place in heaven for these dear people.
I don't want to get started on our "government", but if you want to read something that will REALLY make you ANGRY, try, CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR.
It's all about Viet Nam, Iran, Russia, Egypt, and it's the basis for things going on today in the middle east. Talk about our government hiding things from us.
If you know the names of the 29 Navaho's, and would share them with me, I would be happy to add their names on my memorial.

I'm so glad you found the memorial. I didn't think anyone would ever see it but me. They did a great service for our country. ALL of them are HEROS to me. I'm sorry I don't know where any of them are buried. (Wish I did) I only wanted to honor them all. Thanks for the note. Helen
